Every wanted a double IPA as big as your face? Yearn no more, me hearties.
The move to quart cans came about earlier this year when Mission founder Dan Selis was in a meeting with his local distributor. “One of their staff,” Selis recalls, “said, ‘I’m waiting for a microbrewery to get off its ass and put out a beer in an oil can like Fosters.’ After the meeting I couldn’t stop thinking about that.”
It’s some powerful logic: MORE BEER. BIGGER CANS. Uh…ok!
In case you slept through the lessons on our antiquated system of measuring volume, a quart is 2 full pints. In one container. At 9.25%, one of these cans is like drinking more than a whole bottle of wine so pace yourself out on those heavy seas. There’s also a lower ABV extra pale which is probably the better idea for the vast majority of beer lovers out there.
